Chicago Honors Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

One Good Deed Chicago participated in two days of service in January in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

On Jan. 14, the One Good Deed team volunteered in Chicago Cares' Celebration of Service. More than 3,000 Chicagoans volunteered their days to work on a variety of projects to make Chicago a better place. The One Good Deed group spent the day playing dominoes and doing an art project with senior citizens in an apartment community in Lincoln Park.

On Jan. 16, a team from the Mayor's Office helped renew the North Lawndale YMCA. Working with City Year Chicago, the group completed a massive repainting project and made bookcases for the YMCA. Mayor Rahm Emanuel and the cast of "Race" at the Goodman Theatre were among the notable volunteers.

At this point we can't wait for national gernvnmoets. In the US, states and cities need to take the lead and start instituting their own carbon taxes, R&D, and subsidies. Ron Paul has one thing right get the money out of Washington. The world can no longer afford to be held hostage to those who don't believe in climate change. Regarding the measures cited above not enough. A start, but not enough. As for buildings, I go with Architecture 2030 (www.architecture2030.org). The building sector accounts for about 50% of CO2 emissions. We need to make all new and renovated buildings consume zero energy by 2030.
